In recent years, dog sports have become increasingly popular among pet owners and their furry companions. These activities offer a fun and engaging way for dogs to stay active and stimulated while also providing an opportunity for them to bond with their human companions. Ashton Bemis joins our podcast to talk about many of the exciting options for dog owners to engage in fun bonding activities with their canine companions. Whether your pooch is a speed merchant who enjoys chasing a flying disc or she’s a low-to-the-ground sniffer who is always on the hunt for moles, there is a dog sport for you.
